Kona Cotton Solids | 30 Quilts For 30 Years + Giveaway!
Earlier this summer, I was contacted by the awesome folks of Robert Kaufman fabrics and asked to take part in a special celebration of Kona Solids. You all know how much I LOVE working with solids, so I quickly jumped on board! Starshine is a modified version of my first Fresh Mini Quilt Club design, Starburst. Starshine finishes at 80" x 80" and features sixteen beautiful Kona Solids -- you can get the exact list of fabrics used here!
The Premium White solid used for the background has quickly become a new favorite. Remind me to stock up! Sarah Wilson from Crinkle Love machine quilted the Starshine quilt with fabulous geometric design that pulls the whole design together! I really wanted the focus of this design to be on those color saturated stars, so I used the white for the binding too. This was a first for me but I am super happy with the results!
Purchase the Starshine pattern here!
